"This is absolutely a virus, do not download!!"

December 17, 2014  |  By CraigGrantRETI

 |  Version: MP4 Downloader 3.8.17

Pros

It did as described and converted Youtube videos cleanly, but the cons way outweigh the pros

Cons

Program did not install properly (it is not accessible in the uninstall panel or even using programs live revo uninstaller) making it impossible to remove, it tried to forcibly install itself as an extension into all of my browsers (the browsers flagged it as a malicious install), it disabled my anti-virus, it disabled the operating system's restore points and I started getting pop up messages indicating that my Windows license was not valid (which was obviously a phishing tactic as my Windows is valid). There is no way to remove this virus once its on your machine without the assistance of a professional so do not download it.

Summary

Bottom line is this is very sneaky and powerful virus that can seriously affect the performance of your machine. Do not touch, I am seriously regretting I did and that I trusted CNET and the prior reviews to do so.

"Amazing program!!!"

September 21, 2014  |  By dockets

 |  Version: YouTube Video Downloader 3.8.5

Pros

This is an awesome program. I am so glad that there is a program like this. Fast, efficient, simple to use, and it works! It is especially nice in a place with unreliable/slow internet where it is virtually impossible to stream videos. Download it! You won't regret it.

Cons

None that I can think of.

"Efficient, Easy, Worth the price"

August 19, 2014  |  By limner

 |  Version: YouTube Video Downloader 3.7.24

Pros

Very intuitive interface. Works flawlessly. It's reasonably priced, can queue a ton of URLs, has a nice conversion app included, and allows me to select the format for saving. I found nothing buggy about the performance.
The trial version particularly impressed the devil out of me: It gives full-featured performance for more downloads and more time than I would have expected from software of this sort. No spammy nag screen, no pop-ups, nothing to distract or make me think the app is snake oil. You know precisely what you're getting from the trial, and you can really give it rigorous workout.
Delightfully surprised to find the license is one-user-on-three boxes. Registration code was in my mailbox almost immediately.

Cons

Help is very spare, and generally that's ok -- the interface for the most part is *that* intuitive. That said, there's a few control ambiguities which could/should be included in Help. Settings, for example, has a checkbox for saving/not saving URL history. Yes? And? What does *that do? Where is it stored? How is it retrieved?

Summary

Easily the most satisfying software purchase I've made in a couple of years. I can't say "I've tested them all" because, frankly, it's the only one I tried -- Simply stated, I saw no particular reason to search further. Sorta like going into a bar to pick up a girl, and not needing to get past the entrance because the first one you see meets all your fantasies -- and later in the back seat, she's exactly what you'd hoped.

"Fabulous Program Works like it says it will and more!!!"

July 22, 2014  |  By johnnygosmith

 |  Version: YouTube Video Downloader 3.7.19

Pros

Love music? too cheap (or broke) to buy all that music? I was using AVC for my youtube downloading.But it would fail analyzing 3/5 times. This program is massively better, I haven't seen one fail yet and I've downloaded over 300 videos already and I've had this for like 1.5 days. My little brother loves music and gaming...for years he's been killing my badwidth with his youtube "background music" I came across this and was like..yay I put the URL of his playlist in the program and bang...a couple hours later I had all 3 of his playlists downloaded and converted to MP3's with just x3 copy+paste...no more killing my bandwidth.Lots of file conversion types video and audio, select custom output paths, including network sambas and NAS's for massive music/video storage.I particularly like the fact that I can have multiple windows of the program open for multi-download tasking.It even comes with Chrome extension.

Cons

the program may be able to do 500x more download speed...but my ISP is still only 2mb download rates so if I'm like most people, it's not really a needed option..unless you have free google fiber or something srsly. It doesn't have any kind of video editting, special download qualities like merging//joing multiple files together like AVC has. I also wish that when clicking the extension in Chrome that it would paste the new URL into a currently open program instead of opening a whole new program. Also there are two buttons "Paste URL" and "Add URL" really no difference between the two buttons unless you make the "add url" be able to open a small window where you can paste multiple. You can paste playlist URLs with the "Paste URL" button. I guess I don't understand one vs the other.

Summary

All in all I would highly recommend this program to anyone if you are part of the 1 billion viewers a month***https://www.youtube.com/yt/press/statistics.html*** This program was made for everyone. Efficient, and lovable! Thanks Tomabo!!

"Brilliant! High quality downloads made fast and easy"

July 17, 2014  |  By robodolly

 |  Version: YouTube Video Downloader 3.7.19

Pros

Quick and clean installation
Fast downloads in quality of your choice
User-friendly interface
Browser extensions
Background working

Cons

Haven't found any. (There was a small glitch when, after I had downloaded the first video and then tried to download a second one, I got an on-screen message saying my trial period had expired, even though I had only downloaded the program the same day. However, I closed the program and opened it again, and it has worked fine ever since. I'm only including this comment in case anyone else runs into the same issue.)

Summary

Having read a lot of negative user reviews about other download managers, some of which apparently include trojans and other malware, I decided to give this one a go and I'm very glad I did - it's a really excellent little program with a simple but highly functional user interface. I found it very easy to schedule downloads, which were fast and carried on in the background without interfering with or slowing down my work.
Installation was quick and clean, with no unwanted toolbars sneaking in and no hi-jacking of search engine defaults etc., as reported with certain other programs. You can choose the download quality from a range of settings, or simply select "Highest available". You can choose what happens if you try to download a file that already exists: receive a warning message so that you can take action; download with a different file name; overwrite the existing file, or cancel the download. Other features include extensions for IE, Firefox and Chrome - e.g. you can have a "download" button on your browser toolbar.
I used this program successfully to download crucial videos from my own YouTube channel, to which I had lost access through an oversight. The job was completely straightforward and surprisingly quick, using the "Accelerate downloads" setting, which I think is the default. I would recommend this program without hesitation.
